The report says that President Florentino Perez Ramos, who turns 35 on Tuesday, does not want to give a postponement of more than a year.
But Ramos, who has led Madrid to three Champions League titles and two LaLiga crowns since taking the captaincy in 2015, believes he deserves at least two years, or the option to extend after the first.
He also believes he should not be entitled to a salary cut, despite the club struggling financially with the coronavirus crisis.
Ramos recently allayed his concerns about his age by insisting that he still has many years of top-level football ahead of him, as he targets both the European Championship and the Olympics this summer with his country as his goal, and with his club’s national and European glory.
